      I played around 10 hands entire tournament (out of ~90)
      This is the hand that I've lost with , very painful and ugly .

      Although villain was ahead , it would have been nice to win and continue playing .

      I was lucky in this MTT , I was never dominated in all my pushes .
      Two times it was a coin flip and I won them both , and rest (beside last push) I was ahead and managed to hold it.

      I'll go over the tournament in SnG Wiz and see how it went.

      In regards to the KT hand neither one of u played it well ... what is he limping there? Obviously ur situation is not good but I think u will very rarely be ahead when the BU limps first in. I'd expect him to have a way better hand than A9o there.

      nono i meant this:
      UTG shows 6 Heart 7 Heart (a straight, Seven high)
      nice call lol

      btw you should never be limping there i dont think, see how you lost 1500 chips so easily

      and what do you think bad players limp in with? any A which is ahead of KT, Kx pockets..also might be trapping..

      however if you have seen them limp/fold before a few times then yeah..shove

      basically there's no clear answer there, you should make a few notes like that esp on the FT, very useful

      Never limp ? I need to put 1500 chips to a stack of 6900 ... (and I have 12.5 BB behind)

      i dunno..i wouldnt do it cuz of the chance that BB would do exactly what he did to pick up the dead money, and also because im not comfortable with putting my money in if i happen to flop top pair with this kicker..
